Financial Literacy Month takes on new meaning this year as millions of Americans struggle to cope with the financial impacts of the pandemic. In 2020, 40% of American consumers had trouble paying at least one bill or expense, underscoring the importance of having a solid financial education to navigate these challenging times. 

Kinetic is committed to creating a more equitable financial future for all. According to a recent study by the Pew Research Center, the wealth gap between America’s richest and poorest families more than doubled from 1989 to 2016. We believe that access to robust financial education can be a catalyst for positive change. That’s why we are proud to offer you and your family access to our free financial wellness program Smart Steps.

Highlights of the program include:

  • Short, interactive digital lessons on critical financial topics, ranging from building emergency savings to home ownership
  • Mobile-first design so you can learn anytime, anywhere
  • Available in English and Spanish

As we celebrate Financial Literacy Month this April, Kinetic is proud to continue to offer you this benefit. We hope that these digital resources will help you establish and achieve your financial goals.
